A build based on the iFlight RC IX5 V3 frame that I won in a giveaway.

Themed in pink for extra cuteness.

Looks sweet! How much room is there in the frame? I'm thinking of building one myself but with the holybro kakute F7, atlatl and tekko32 stack (FC-ESC-VTX). The F7 protrudes a bit to the back, so wondering how much room you have in this frame. You used a micro cam on purpose to save on room?

Hey sorry for late reply - I should turn on my email notifications.
There's not awfully much space, but F7 should fit. There's actually quite a lot of space height-wise, so the stack should fit. Might be a bit trickier to fit receiver/battery strap, but I guess you'd manage. I'll post a picture of work in progress, maybe that will give you a bit more insight.
About the camera - I used micro because I wanted to be sure it'll fit + plus it was pink and I loved that :D The camera is actually pretty awesome, I'm sad I didn't get more of those.

My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..
